HALARI BREVETE A PARIS

Jean Hilaire Asté (1775-1840) was a French music professor and instrument maker. In 1804, founded the maison Halari (also known as Halary).

Jean Louis Antoine (1788-1861) succeeded Asté in 1840 and continued to use the name Halari. His son, Jules Leon Antoine (1827- after 1872) took over the business and sold the company to Comte et Cie in 1873, led by François Sudre.
